Wallabies captain Will Skelton was absent from Australia’s team photo, raising concerns about his fitness for the Rugby World Cup clash with Fiji. Skelton injured his calf in training and coach Eddie Jones said he would be given until kickoff to prove his fitness. Assistant coach Dan Palmer denied any mind games and stated that Skelton is being given as much time as possible to recover. If Skelton is ruled out, hooker Dave Porecki will captain Australia for the first time. Former captain James Slipper praised Porecki’s leadership qualities and said he would do a superb job.
